We tried this place for Cinco De Mayo and it was really tasty! The food was great and our waiter was so friendly and helpful! Everything I had was amazing. The only thing I was not impressed with was the Guac- maybe they have someone new making it or the person wasn't paying attention to the recipe- It was basically a bowl of smashed avocado with nothing else it. The salsa was delicious!
This is absolutely one of our family’s favorite places to eat in DC. They have great options for our meat eaters and vegetarian. The service was fabulous and food as always delicious
Wonderful brunch experience! My friends were so late and the staff was still welcoming and accommodating. They are doing a great job managing COVID safety and the food was delicious as always.
Wonderful restaurant. Great food. Excellent service. Can't wait to go back!!!
Socially distant & the guacamole was great
Very covid safe! Enjoyed eating an amazing meal in a fun environment!
One of the best happy hours in the city. Service is always perfect. And fantastic mezcal selection.
Very good brunch!
Enjoyed a quiet Sunday brunch! Love the decor. The tortillas chips are best I have ever eaten. Guacamole is a must-try!
One of my favorite restaurants in DC. Great atmosphere and delicious, fun food with lots of options.
Great social distancing practice with well-spaced tables and boots as well as plexiglass shields make dining indoor feel safe if eating outdoor is not an option (and there plenty of space outdoor)!
One of the most amazing features is the complimentary salsa and chips.
Last time we dined, I enjoyed the guacamole, Coliflor frito, Arrachera, and the must have tacos - Chilorio de res and Cochinita
Great margaritas - both Mezcal and traditional Oyamel
Great food! Our server was wonderful as well-she was very attentive and recommended items based on our interests. We were very pleased to celebrate a birthday dinner here! Will definitely recommend this establishment to others!
Absolutely delicious and so much fun. People are incredibly nice and welcoming. Salt air margaritas and so many delicious plates to share - Oyamel is sour favorite.
The entire experience was fabulous!! Very authentic.
Great time with people we haven’t seen in person for a year!
The waitstaff was awesome, food was delicious. The atmosphere inside was festive and fun.
Amazing! Every time.
Great place for a Sunday brunch or to spend the afternoon. The Queso al tequila and Guacamole are spectacular!
We chose to sit outside since it's safer in the pandemic (even though I'm fully vaccinated) but it was also a beautiful and sunny day. It was disappointing that it was beautiful out but a bit chilly in the shade - and there were no tables in the sun, but only inside the sheltered canopies. The table was also dirty and the server didn't clean it off (or the chairs), like they do at Jaleo and the other similar restaurants, or offer hand sanitizer. Service was okay - not exceptional but good. It wasn't very busy that day.
Tons of outdoor seating right now! Although we did have some noice from a crane in the street (definitely a one off)
Definitely not my best visit. The tacos were cold and the tortilla soggy. The Brussel sprouts were very oily/greasy The drinks were on point though. The fire alarm went off for about five minutes but out of staffs control.
Amazing service from all the staff we encountered! Great meal!
Homeless person stole our food from our table, but management handled it well.
Great outdoor dinner on Saturday night. Promptly shown to seats on makeshift outdoor patio area. Service timely and very attentive from filling water glasses to helpful suggestions. Food was outstanding, particularly grilled octopus, grilled vegetable salad and deserts. Outdoor ambiance is not much but in these covid days having any outdoor dining is good. Will return soon.
The food was amazing.
Finger food - small portions but very good food.
Great as always! One of my favorite restaurants in DC. Never fails to impress
Delicious food with top notch service!
The food and service was fantastic. Since moving to the DMV area 3 year's ago, this is definitely one of the best places to have Mexican food. We highly recommend this place and will definitely plan to go back!
Oyamel was not its usual great self on Saturday. Service was not good. It took half an hour to get plates, repeated asking for things, and no one took our food order for almost an hour. The steak we got was really tough. The drinks were great per usual, but nothing really was a wow. For the price point, it wasn't so great.
Oyamel always has great food and great service! The restaurant has done a great job with COVID-19 protocols indoors and out.
Place is dirty, customer service very poor
Delicious food, wonderful service, and Covid safe!
Food was great. Portions slightly small for price. Signature drinks were amazing. Loved the atmosphere, fantastic.
Food was amazing!
Consistently safe, and good service. Awesome food in a good environment
Excellent food and service!! This is a treasure in DC
Absolutely amazing taste of the Mexican food. It really felt like a home cooking (I assume). We’ll be definitely back...
